Wondering what to do with all of this basil? We have a few ideas:

Many thanks to Kelsey for including a stop here in her travels across the Northeast. Both your hard work and inspiring conversation were much appreciated!

Seeing that the basil’s still going strong, over tea Kelsey & I decided to make a list of the many ways basil can be used. Please add to the list in the comment section below! Here are a few that we came up with:

  1. Pesto
  2. Basil oil
  3. Asian style stir fry or curried dish, THIS Thai Chicken Stir Fry, for example
  4. Grilled tomato, mozzarella & basil sandwich
  5. Added to tomato sauces
  6. Bruschetta
  7. Breads such as THIS Genovese Basil Bread
  8. Aromatic bouquets
  9. dried for seasoning

If you’d like to store basil for later use, it’s quite easy to freeze and it can also be dried.
